I started in that direction, then realized Info-following-node-name
was where it all happened.

The only thing with a regexp would be that in theory there's three

        - default allowedchars in Info-following-node-name
        - Info-extract-menu-node-name disallowing "."
        - Info-extract-menu-node-name disallowing "." and allowing "\n",
          under the multi-line option

It might be nice if a node name could be parsed out context-free, but
I'm not sure if it's possible.
